Something like this:
SELECT iif(instr(field1, "WBS-") <> 0, left(right(field1,  len(field1) - instr(field1, "WBS-") -3), instr(right(field1,  len(field1) - instr(field1, "WBS-") -3), "_")-1), "") as newcolumn
FROM Table1;

And if you want to include WBS as well, try this:
SELECT iif(instr(field1, "WBS-") <> 0, left(right(field1,  len(field1) - instr(field1, "WBS-") +1), instr(right(field1,  len(field1) - instr(field1, "WBS-")), "_")), "") as newcolumn
FROM Table1;
